Quick – you’re reaching for your bottle. What hand do you use? According to Kinetic, if you’re like most riders you favor a particular hand, likely your dominant one. That begs the question, if you’re constantly grabbing the bottle from one side of the frame, why do most bottle cages only have the split located dead center on the frame? Filed in the category of why didn’t I think of that, the new Kinetic Twenty20 water bottle cage addresses that very issue.
Simple, affordable, and light, the Twenty20 cage may have you rethinking your current bottle holders…
Called Twenty20, the name derives from the fact that each cage has three different mounting configurations. The standard centered option is still there, but the Twenty20 adds two mounting positions, each clocked 20 degrees away from center. Depending on which way you grab for your bottle you can mount the cage to your preference. The new angle of the cage makes removing and reinserting the bottle easier, which should mean less chance of dropped bottles on your ride.
Offered in four colors, black, red, Kinetic green, and white, the cages come in at 38 grams thanks to their composite construction. Available now, the Twenty20 cages retail for $15 a piece.
